This design was in an old magazine which had a mix of things, stories and patterns for different crafts. Sadly at this point I don't have the magazine to hand to tell you what it was.
I have always been fond of sweet peas, my grandfather grew them in the garden and I would "help" the shoots find the strings to cling to and grow. Once there were flowers I was allowed to help pick them to make bouquets he would take to the over 60's club as a prize for the raffle.
We later grew them at home and took them to Church on a Sunday.
So they hold a special place in our family. Add on the butterfly and it was just perfect for a birthday card for my mother. This is the only item I have sewn during my lunch break at work, time was a factor as I had started the project a bit too close to the day it needed to be finished by.
